Godwinning on the Huffington Post

Departing from our usual coverage for a second, the Huffington Post covered a story about John Burton, a California Democratic chief, comparing the Republicans to the Nazis. Now if you recall Glenn Beck (among others) have compared Democrats to the Nazis, which led to the Huffington Post getting very offended. This time, however, everyone was glad to agree that their fellow Americans are indeed just like one of the most evil groups of people in history.

Now as I have said, this doesn't bother me out of any particular like for the Republicans. It's just an informative example of how the Huffington Post readership can got hopped up on hatred to the point where they think more with their hearts than with their brains, Godwin's Law not withstanding.
